  2. All the flowers are so different and very beautiful. I should visit Tokyo in Spring! I have heard of this famous US born author Koizumi Yakumo who was also a professor at Waseda University where you studied. Have you ever read his books?

      Thank you very much for your comment. Koizumi Yakumo or Patrick Lafcadio Hearn was born in Greece, it was occupied by UK at that time. His mother is a Greek. I read his Kwaidan, or short story when I was young.
      I hope you will come to Tokyo at the cherry blossom season.

  22. 桜のある風景とても魅力的です。高層ビル群をバックにした桜は東京ならではの風景ですね。桜以外のお花見も楽しみ、温泉で締めというのもいいですね。

  23. Gorgeous blossoms "here and there", on the "small hill in Tokyo"...Lovely saying this! *-* Spring for sure is so generous and these varieties of blooms, these amazing cherry blossoms are stunning! I've learned so much and it's impressive to see all these delicate aspects in gardens and parks. In here, we have variations of Plum flowers and, also, usually cultivars of Cherry Plums; but not so many places of vista or panoramas. The river and the Cherry blossoms are amazing! Many thanks for sharing them with as.
    Greetings of well to you and family in these days!

  28. お元気ですか? 瞬く間に終わってしまた日本旅行、すでになつかしさでいっぱいです。 孫と嫁がインフルエンザで寝込んでいたため、最初に一周間は、食事の準備、お手伝いで追われてしまいました。 息抜きに、上田、長野の温泉地で2泊3日の旅行を主人と楽しみました。 あいにく、軽井沢では、その日北風が冷たくて、4月も半ば近く、、、なぜ?斎藤さんの素晴らしいい写真も眺めて、次回の旅行の参考にしたいです。 こんな素敵な写真を撮れるようにも、頑張りたいです。 今度は四国あたりかなあ、、、。
